    There is a huge single player career to play through with a tremendous variety of locations and courses, the graphics are so good that no description could do them justice and the handling is perfect, making for a supremely enjoyable gaming experience.
  2. I love this game. There's just something about your car flipping end over end 5 or six times that brings a great big smile to my face! This is also the first racing game that I have actually saved a replay to the HDD because I had such an awesome wreck in it!

    The end result is an engrossing racing experience - one which draws upon both the simulation and arcade ends of the racing spectrum and balances them perfectly in order to provide the most enjoyable rally racing experience on the Xbox.
  4. Hands down one of the best driving experiences you can have on the Xbox.

    It's rare to find a racer that's so easy to pick up and play - and so immediately addictnig. It's not a serious sim, but you'll be too busy enjoying yourself to care. [July 2004, p.102]
  6. The graphics are superb and the sound is awesome. The game play is very deep and the types of races are an excellent assortment of race types.
  7. If you're a sim nut, avoid Rallisport Challenge 2 like the plague. After this review, I seriously can't see myself ever wanting to play this title again...If you like mindless trigger mashing and insane powerslides (even if they're artificially forced), then it's probably a 4/5 for you.

Once upon a time i used to play world chamionship rally on the ps2 and i loved it. It gave a real fealing of speed and danger and the graphics were brill for the PS2. Since then nothing as come close to being this good on the xbox (including the great PGR2 which didn't quite have the sense of speed). Now rallisport challenge 2 has bettered the ps2 game in nearly every respect. I love the courses, the cars, the variety, the graphics, the sound and THE SHEER BLOODY SPEED. The only thing i don't like is the difficulty of the game as it starts at too low a level and everybody will storm through the initial amateur stage without dropping more than a few points. Online the game is impressive with upto 4 cars with collisions turned on or upto 16 with other players appearing as ghosts. This is good but i consider it a bonus extra because the career is so good. Final words: very strongly recommended. Expand
